Emry (Em-ree) – Anglicized version of the Turkish name Emre (Em-reh):“Loving friend or brother; brotherly love.” Yunus Emre was a famous 12th century Turkish poet, humanist, pacifist and mystic, and so Emre is often translated as “poet.”
Other names from which Emry may also be derived:
Emrys – Welsh form of the Greek “Ambrose”: “immortal”
Emery – Germanic/English: “Industrious ruler or leader”
There is a popular misconception circulating on the internet that Emry is a Welsh name meaning “honorable.” However, this seems to have no basis in fact, as it does not appear in any verifiable listing of Welsh names, nor does it seem to have any literal translation in that language. “Aneurin” is the actual Welsh name meaning "honorable."
I would translate "Aneurin" as "Princely" or "Girded in gold". There are about six different meanings for welsh names and three of them mean "white". Theres not just one word for each meaning...Just, you know? man? thats not how names work.
